At the foot of the Blyde River Canyon lies the Blyde River Botanical Gardens Reserve. In 1928 an irrigation canal was dug parallel to the Blyde River which runs through the center of the reserve. The western border of the 90 ha large estate is the Blyde River itself and most of the vegetation within the reserve is therefore riverine forest. A portion of the farm Driehoek was subdivided into 57 stands which have been provided with both water and electricity points. 5 hectares of the estate were set aside for a lodge, which provides 8 modern suites, outside and inside conference facilities, manager's house and pool in a natural garden. The estate is ideally situated for excursions into the nearby Kruger National Park, Moholoholo Rehabilitation Center, the Cheetah Project and to the picturesque Panorama Route. Owners pay a monthly levy which goes towards wages, the operation of the security gate, patrolling the electrified fence, upkeep of the roads and the maintenance of the canal. Members are not allowed to fence their properties as species of game such as zebra, impala, warthog, bushpig, hippos, duiker and many others must have free access to the canal and river. The stand is on the banks of the Blyde River and has an abundance of enormous, indigenous trees.
